Things I hate:

1. I hate that all of you hate things. Stop hating you haters

2. I dislike OSU alumni that crap on non-alumni because we didn't actually attend the university. Doesn't make any sense whatsoever, so stop it.

3. We do have obnoxious fans, but so does every other school I've come to find. There are just a lot more OSU fans across the country which increases the amount of crazies out there.

4. I also hate lists

5. And irony

I don't know much about them other than it being an NAIA school. I played my HS ball at Findlay and played college ball in the GLIAC so I'm familiar with all of the DII stadiums in MI.

Based on the anticipated crowd size I'd prefer to see this game stay in a smaller, yet full venue. I think it creates a much better atmosphere than playing in an empty stadium (disappointed with state finals being at The Shoe moving forward). But if this game can get covered by ESPN in the future I'd anticipate the crowd size growing dramatically at which point a MAC school stadium would make more sense.

Wayne State isn't a terrible venue but I think there are better options in MI with stadiums of similar size. Wayne St is not in a terrible part of Detroit and I nor anybody else felt uncomfortable being there. I'd say the biggest problem is that the locker rooms are not underneath the main grandstand. The gym locker rooms are used for football games which is a decent walk to the stadium. If it wasn't so far away, Northern Michigan's wooden dome in the UP would be an awesome place for a game. GVSU is a pretty cool place too.

Also an FYI, Donnell is actually Findlay High School's stadium that UF uses, hence the entire facility being covered in blue and gold. UF is currently in the process of building a new stadium on campus.

I don't understand the notion that he was at a disadvantage as a lefty in a camp geared towards rolling right. I believe rolling to the opposite of your arm is actually more advantageous than rolling to your strong side. When you roll to the side of your arm it is very easy to cheat on your mechanics because you can get away with throwing the ball across your body, however two major problems can come from that; one being a lack of velocity on the ball and the second is you lose on accuracy. When you roll the opposite way you have to force your hips and shoulders around toward your target allowing you to throw with more velocity and accuracy. Two different techniques are used to teach this; one is to turn your inside leg and expose the inside of the knee which automatically forces the hips around and the other is simply snapping your shoulders in towards the target. The only time rolling the opposite way becomes difficult is when you have a defender attacking your inside shoulder not allowing you to turn, but in this case he did not face this scenario since these were merely passing drills.

It's almost like receivers saying they have a hard time catching balls from left-handed QBs because the ball spins the opposite direction. No, you just can't catch and you found a bullshit excuse to justify it. (I was a lefty QB if you haven't picked up on the bias yet)

This is all true. I remember multiple things being thrown at us from the stands as we walked in to the locker room during halftime of a football game. Rough bunch down there, they don't mess around.

Comment 07 May 2014

It's not surprising at all. The arm motion, feet separation and release points are totally different. I played QB my whole life up through college and when I did the natural transition in to post-collegiate athletics and joined a softball beer league, I had to throw the damn ball side-arm until I could re-train my throwing motion. Went from feeling very athletic to completely unathletic during that transition.

I'll never forget sitting in a restaurant with a friend of mine that graduated from Marshall and my parents. He was going off about how OSU fans always use the word 'we' when talking about the team and how ridiculous it is that we always say THE Ohio State University. My Dad looked at him and said, "didn't you have a movie called WE Are Marshall?" He had nothing to say after that.

I keep up with current events and read the news from several websites daily. Most do not mention anything about this NYT report and the ones that do have it buried, like Yahoo for example (it is buried way down on their homepage). Whether it happened or not, the girl deserved and should have received a fair and complete investigation. Money trumps everything and football is big business in Florida. Stories like this continue to diminish the trust we have in the people that are supposed to be looking out for us. scUM is going through the same scenario but at least they are getting called out for it.

I remember my business law professor saying that our judicial system works well and is very effective. Yeah, BS

We are better than this Merica

Her and her father are convinced Randle is the only one that will go, but even he might stay. Oooh those UK fans. Completely delusional.

Comment 08 Apr 2014

My wife and her entire family are from Kentucky and she graduated from UK. One of her uncle's is always talking trash so I sent him a Robert Morris NIT champ shirt. He stopped talking trash after that.

Glad UK lost though. Anyone that spends significant time around a UK basketball fan will know that they can be insufferable. Their default move every single game is to claim all the calls are going against them and the refs decided before the game that UK should lose. My wife is convinced something will come out where the refs played a roll in deciding the outcome of the game. To keep the peace, I just agreed with her. But any normal fan watching the game would probably agree the officiating was good and if anything UK got the calls after looking at team fouls from the entire game.
